Here, Beethoven.

Here, boy.

Here's a special treat.

Here, Beethoven.

This is from all of us.


I want you to have this.

Mom, we're out of toilet paper!


Come on, kids!

You're gonna be late.

The thing is, the bank has got to see

that what we're doing here is important.

That air fresheners do more

than just freshen air.

- I'm sure that the bank's aware of it.

- I'm sure they are.

If this bank manager has

any imagination, he'll understand.

Ryce, breakfast! Go ahead.

- Tell me how you're gonna start.

- I'm gonna say, "Mr. Bickert...

I woke up one morning a couple

of months ago and I realized something."

- Didn't I have sausage?

- You ate it, honey.

Honey, don't say "challenge."

It's a scary word to a bank.

- Opportunity.

- Ah, good. Much better.

There's a much bigger

opportunity out there.

- Hi, Daddy.

- Hi, honey.

- Good morning, Dad.

- Good morning. Not just...

Not just to connect

people's air fresheners...

- Not now, boy. We're late.

- or to their truck.

Listen to this.

- Ryce, come on!

- Hi, thanks for picking me up.


What am I gonna wear?

Hi. Thanks for picking me up.

What do you think?

Mom, life is amazing.

I'm getting a ride to school

with Michelle and Taylor Devereaux.

- Who's Taylor Devereaux?

- A boy.

A boy.

Not a challenge,

it's an opportunity.

Not just to connect air fresheners

to a person's car or truck...

- but to connect air fresheners...

- Mr. Newton!

to a person's entire life.

You call the pitch.

This is an opportunity

to connect air fresheners...

to a person's car or truck.

Nooo! Ooo-ooh.


Oh, nooo!


Alice, the news kid threw

the paper, knocked the coffee.

- Aw, that's terrible.

- I was trying to concentrate.

Now I gotta change my clothes.

- Hi.

- Hi.

Michelle said you could use

a ride to school.


- Hi.

- HI.

- I'm Taylor Devereaux.

- And I'm Ryce's mom.

- And that's my dad.

- Hi there.

Don't worry.

I'll get Ryce to school and back safely.

Oh, I'm not worried. You're very

handsome, so she can be a little late.

Thanks, Mom.

Bye, Dad.

Seat belts.


That's the best-looking kid

I've ever seen in my life.

Oh, God.

Honey, he's just giving her

a ride to school.

Why does she need a ride?

- It's a two-minute walk.

- Hi, Michelle.

You used to give me

a ride to school, remember?

On a bicycle.

Still, honey, you were very, very...

No, you were quite a...

- Mommy, are we late yet?

- Oh, God, I gotta get goin'!

- Good luck, Dad.

- Thanks.

Okay. It's okay.

Take it easy.

Oooh, George, honey,

your socks!

Aaah! I'm late!

It's okay. Just don't cross

your legs. That's easy, huh?


- So, you got strawberry?

- Uh-huh.

Has it got real strawberry in it?

I'll have a single cone, please.

What are you gonna have, Missy?

Okay, make that two strawberries.

Let's see.

What, you know this guy?

Huh? Hello? Missy?

I think she's got a date.

Uh, better make that

three strawberry.

Okay, this one's on me.

But next time, you're buying.

Here you go.

There ya go.

How's that? Huh?

Kiss the dog good-bye, Brillo.

Visiting hours are over.


Look, what do you wanna take Missy for?

You hate dogs.

- You hate all living things.

- Look, this is not about animals.

It's about alimony. And since I got the

court order, the dog stays with me...

until we negotiate

our little divorce.

Did my lawyer tell you what I want?

Yeah, $50,000.

That's right.

If I had the 50,000,

things would be different, but I don't.

- Well, then get it.

- Which dog, baby?

That one.

The one with the bow.
